Cocktail: Magic City


  • 6-8 Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1 part Jägermeister Cold Brew 
  • 1 part Bacardi 4yr         
  • ½ part Fresh Lime Juice
  • ½ part Passion Fruit Puree
  • ½ part Orgeat

Garnish: Mint Sprig & Angostura Bitters

Glass: Rocks

Method: Shaken & Strained

Tips & Tricks:

  • Smack and tear a healthy handful of fresh mint leaves and put them in a shaker first; muddling is optional. Add all other ingredients to a shaker tin, fill ¾ with ice and shake hard.
  • Strain the cocktail over fresh crushed ice and garnish.
  • A good hard shake should get you all the mint flavor you need; no need to muddle. 
  • When pouring over crushed ice, use a double-sided teardrop “spoon” to create a hole that goes to the bottom of the glass for even distribution of liquid.

Hey Carla, what inspired you to create this amazing cocktail?

I love Miami and all that it brings to the table with its lush cultural diversity. First and foremost, the Cafecito IYKYK; if you have never had a hand-whipped Collada made for you, it's time to visit the local ventanita. Next up, The Mojito. In this tropical climate, you can grow mojito mint year-round! With the other tropical flavors of passion fruit and orgeat to balance and round out the coffee & rum, it’s a cocktail to honor all things Miami

What does hospitality mean to you?

Hospitality creates an experience for someone, a lasting and core memory they will take with them. It’s about them, not you!

Grab your tools, and let's make it together!
